I was nominated a few months ago ( January to be precise) for a Liebster Award by Erin the lovely lady behind the BayArean blog. Last week fierce mama Sovanny from ModeMadison selected me as well. Let me tell you guys that I’m so humbled to be selected by my fellow bloggers, ‘preciate it ladies.
I’m all about blog lovin’ ( see what I did there) and there’s nothing sweeter than fellow bloggers supporting each other in what seems to be such a competitive “sphere’. With that being said, because I never got around to answering Erin’s questions back in January (I procrastinate- pray for me y’all) and received Sovanny’s nomination last week, I’m going to hit two birds with one stone. Meaning I’m going to bend the rules a little.
Please don’t call the Liebster Police on my behind… Just trying to be productive! I will be answering one of each questions posed by the lovely bloggers until I total 11 questions.
The rules are…
1. Post the award proudly on your blog
2. Choose 5 blogs to pass this award on to
3. Notify recipients of their nomination by commenting on their blog
4. Write 11 interesting facts about you + 11 questions for bloggers to answer
5. Answer 11 questions from the blogger who nominated you
6. Link back to the blogger who presented the award to you
Obviously I’m bending the rules here soooo number 5 is a mish mash of both bloggers.
